According to Transparency International India (TII), India’s budget provides less information in the public domain and therefore is less transparent.
The anti-corruption watchdog noted on Wednesday the fact that less transparency would trigger severe economic problems.
TII called the budget “intractable” and “incomprehensible” for the citizens, therefore it becomes difficult for a common man to participate in shaping public policy.
The watchdog also noted that very little budgetary information is available in the public domain which makes the Indian budget less transparent when accessed according to the international parameters.
India scored 48 on 100 in the Open Budget Survey of 2017. It is to be noted that Bangladesh budget is more transparent than Indian Budget says’s the transparency international.
Today Arun Jaitley will present its last budget in the parliament before 2019 election.
